So here's the deal. My band is scheduled to play with Badfish at the Garden Grove Music Fest in August. We're all mad souped because it's, obviously for us, the opportunity of a lifetime. However, we need to raise $2,500 to buy the tickets first. We're already planning on pawning some stuff off this weekend, but it's definitely not gonna cover the whole cost. What are some good ideas to help raise some quick cash? Obviously no prostitution/sexual favors/etc.
Thanks.
Peace.

Lemonade stand....?

WHy do you have to buy tickets if you are playing the concert?


To sell, I guess. I'm not really clear on the entire thing, our frontman's dealing with it.
Peace.

I say recommend the good old fashioned prostitution/sexual favors/ect. approach.

i'm guessing plane tickets.
try and get a quick sponsor to slap a sticker on the bass drum or brusk like mad and get a part time job
Just because I play the drums doesn't mean I suck at guitar, or ams that I's iz stoopidz.

I think on Saved By The Bell they came up with a plan to make some money to repair someone's car, I forget whose. They were supposed to hold a fake raffle, sell tickets for a dollar, and then fix it so that Screech would win because they didn't actually have a prize. Money made and hardly no one suspects anything. Win!

buy oregano. sell to kids who are trying 'weed' for the first time. win.
#11
ask people to donate money to you so you can play, and then take more of their money selling them a ticket.

other than that, prostitution. hands down.
#12
Its not that uncommon for promoters to require the bands to buy the tickets upfront and then sell them themselves. That way the promoter always gets paid. Hold a benefit show with some other bands in a barn or something, charge a few bucks admission.

do you know how shady it would be for some kid to suddenly hold a raffle at his house?

We were also thinking of buying candy in bulk and then selling it for a dollar a piece at school. Schoolkids eat that **** up.

Well.....your first mistake was calling on the pit for knowledge

Your second mistake was saying no prostitution/sexual favors/etc.

That is ALWAYS how you get money.

Its just that there have been a dozen threads about it.

I like the way you bluntly put it though, for some reason.

Let's say your band has 4 members.

Let's say everyone of you get a job over the summer.

2500/4 = 625$ each.

Fair deal.
